The Carolinian forest offers a spectacular backdrop for the trail system at Hay Creek.
This trail loops through wooded areas and past the Hay Creek Reservoir, providing opportunity for bird watching and viewing a variety of plants. There are signs that describe some of the trees. The trail dips beside the Hay Creek Reservoir and hikers can cross a foot bridge into the conservation area.
This trail is open year round.
From Simcoe, head southwest out of town on Highway 24, turn left onto Radical Road. Turn right onto Ryerse Road and the entrance to the Conservation Area will be on your right.
Points of Interest:
Hay Creek reservoir is one of the few remaining reservoirs in Norfolk County as many of the dams that held these reservoirs have fallen into disrepair or have been decommissioned.
